Hello All, Coming back to gentoo after a 6 year hiatus. Just retired and I have some free time on my hands. Anyway I am trying to get Alsa working (it's not), but currently I am confused to whats going on. My hardware is Intel Nuc8i5beh. Ive been jumping from post to post, and I'm going in circles trying to iron this out. I have resorted to using the forum because I have been beat and surrender. I really appreciate the forum and it has helped me with several issues, but now i feel up against a brick wall. Not sure if its a kernel/module issue, or a config issue. It looks like i have a sound card, but alsa does not pick it up.

Here are the Basics:

Code:
alsa-info.sh

http://alsa-project.org/db/?f=75b8cdb5802f651b0bbfed5dde85b13b8b6277e3


Code:
name -r
5.4.80-gentoo-r1

Code:
aplay -l
aplay: device_list:274: no soundcards found...



Code:
lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio"
00:1f.3 Audio device: Intel Corporation Cannon Point-LP High Definition Audio Controller (rev 30) (prog-if 80)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Cannon Point-LP High Definition Audio Controller
        Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 16
        Memory at c0b20000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Memory at 404ab00000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1M]
        Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 3
        Capabilities: [80] Vendor Specific Information: Len=14 <?>
        Capabilities: [60] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
        Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel



Code:
head -1 /proc/asound/card*/codec*
head: cannot open '/proc/asound/card*/codec*' for reading: No such file or directory

Code:
nuc@gentoo /etc $ grep SND_HDA /usr/src/linux/.config
CONFIG_SND_HDA=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL_DETECT_DMIC=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_HWDEP=y

CONFIG_SND_HDA_DSP_LOADER=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_COMPONENT=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_I915=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=64


Any help is appreciated.
Thanks Scott

littleconda,

Welcome back. Nobody ever leaves Gentoo you know. :)

With
Code:
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=y
and all of the codecs built as =m, they can never be loaded.
All built into the kernel works or all as modules works.

You have a Cannon Point SoC. Be sure you have PINCTL(sp) support for it in the kernel or lots of things won't work.

Neddy,
You were able to fix 2 things,

1)My sound works beautifully now after the kernel change.

2)My wife is talking to me again (my ocd with this issue was driving her crazy).

Thanks for the quick response

Cheers,
Scott
